securing a glass screen protector

Post by Lpoolm » Sun Aug 13, 2017 12:28 pm

hi, i am sure this has been mentioned but i can not find anything within any screen protector threads.
but what are people using to secure screen protectors to there gbz?
i have used double sided tape but it keeps lifting in one corner and before when i gave my gbz a good hammering (which warmed it up a bit) the surround completly fell out, luckily onto my lap!
i am not keen on superglue as not sure if it will haze the glass, hot glue will just melt again when it gets warm, so any tips would be great!

the stuff i use, and has never failed me is....

its used for mobile phones so is fairly thin,
and you could most probably get it cheaper via aliexpress (i've only ever bought it once, used it alot and still got tons left)....

Superglue (CA) hazing or fogging is caused by the vapour created as the glue cures. If you have air moving across the surface while the glue cures - a fan, or just blowing on it - you shouldn't get any fogging. FWIW.

Though I'd probably go with LOCA glue https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from ... a&_sacat=0

Yes I used exactly the same tape and it worked wonders! Nice and very secure. Still have the option to remove it and do it again and in my case provides a nice deal around the screen to prevent dust from coming in.
